You Are What You Read


roommate agreement1   I was reading an email from Galley Cat, and they had an interesting article on writing that states if you want to write better then you need to read a lot of books. Now, I am not a writer, nor do I have time to be. What caught my interest was the infographic that went along with the article. The infographic is a look at what is on famous people’s bookshelves. The people that made the list are writers, musicians, movie stars, presidents, and television personalities….kinda. Along with John F. Kennedy, Queen Elizabeth, David Bowie, and Albert Einstein, you will find Dwight Schrute and my favorite – Sheldon Cooper. On Sheldon’s bookshelf you can find the infamous Roommate Agreement. If you do not know who Sheldon Cooper is run right now to your local library and rent a copy of The Big Bang Theory season one. Go ahead… I’ll wait. Good – you’re back. Now aren’t you glad you watched that? So, how many of the books on the infograph have you read? Me? Only 30 titles, but there are some good ones there such as:

Fancy Coffins To Make Yourself by Dale Power,

Reusing Old Graves by Douglas Davies,

The Revenge Encyclopedia, and

The Armageddon Survival Handbook.
